Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Dr. Stanley H. Block helps people see their mind as never before by helping them recognize their identity system and then guiding them through simple mapping exercises to teach them how to bridge, which rests their I-System so that they can unblock their potential to deal with their career, health, or anything.”

—Shirley MacLaine, actress and author of Out on a Leash and The Camino

“Transform your life in a matter of ten days. I did.”

—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“Mind-body bridging is a new body-mind language that allows people to reconnect with their ability to function effectively. Since I have directly witnessed the power and efficacy of Stan’s work, I am very ready to state that the approach of mapping and bridging can be an adjunct to spiritual practice or it can stand on its own.”

—Charlotte Joko Beck, bestselling author of Everyday Zen

“Dr. Block’s bridging methods have given me new ways to help pitchers deal with adversity and compete in the major leagues.”

—Rafael Chaves of the New York Yankee Organization, former pitching coach for Seattle Mariners

“This mind-body medicine-based workbook guides readers back to their inner reservoir of self-empowerment by showing them how to override a learned stress response and faulty brain network and regain access to their natural executive functioning. The mind-body mapping exercises outlined within teach readers how to reduce stress and develop a set of personalized, powerful, crisis-management tools. Moreover, since these exercises are quick and easy to do, they’ll become a welcome staple of your lifelong health regimen. But don’t be fooled by their simplicity. I’ve witnessed their powerful impact personally and in my work with cancer patients and their caregivers.”

—Michelle Rodoletz, PhD, assistant professor in the department of psychiatry, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA, and director of the Continuing Education Program for HealthForumOnline (www.healthforumonline.com)
